Cost Per Click (CPC) / effective Cost Per Click (eCPC)

The price an advertiser must pay to a publisher for each click on an ad.

CPC rates mitigates the risk for advertisers as they only pay when their ad actually gets clicked. It can cost up to $20 per click or more – the cost mainly depends on targeting high-demand audiences or popular phrases on Google.
